You can also choose to get to the place before the sun risings or sets to get a more breathtaking view that you’ll surely appreciate. Though it also gets crowded before the sun sets in the place, you can always choose to stay there and take pictures before it gets completely dark and enjoy the sceneries before the gate closes.
However, a helpful tip that you must keep in mind is keeping track of time. The guards are usually closing the gates at 6:45 pm and are not giving any warning. This is a tip from a person who have already visited the place. Guards will lock you in without warning so you better check your time. Also, an important tip is not leaving any valuables in your car even if you are going to stay in Mount Tantalus.
So maybe after checking out Diamond Head State Monument maybe a trip up to Mount Tantalus to catch the sun set!
